College Automotive Program Receives New Keco Equipment

Oct. 19, 2022

The Auto Collision and Repair program at the College of Lake County received a Keco glue pulling system thanks to the efforts of the Automotive Service Providers of Illinois. 

Oct. 19, 2022—The Auto Collision and Repair program at the College of Lake County recently received a donation made possible by the Automotive Service Providers of Illinois. 

According to the Daily Herald, the donation included a Keco glue pulling system and a day of on-site training for the students and faculty. This system will help those involved with the school program remove vehicle dents. 

The Automotive Service Providers of Illinois became aware of the College of Lake County automotive program through one of their board members, Eddie Santiago. Santiago is an adjunct faculty member who has taught at CLC for six years.

Members of the AASPI toured the facility at the college over the summer, and this group included Executive Director Julie Lombardo. This experience inspired Lombardo to submit a nomination for the automotive program to the KECO Quarterly Collision Educators Giveaway.
